When you realize you are doomed to be on your crutches over the Christmas season, you might wonder how you are going to get it all done. How will you get out and shop for everyone on your list? Here are a few ideas to help you get those people presents without overdoing it on your crutches.
Idea#1: Use the Internet
There are a lot of things you can buy online from the comforts of your own home. Visit some of your favorite online stores and see if you can find the perfect christmas gifts for your family and all of the people on your list. Keep an eye out for good deals and free shipping and you might even end up saving money.
Idea#2: Get Crafty
You know that the homemade gifts you receive are always extra special to you, but you have never had time in the past to make things for others. This year, all you have is time so get a little crafty and pick out a couple of things that you can make yourself. These gifts will be treasured for years to come and they will help you take care of your shopping without making a lot of trips to the stores.
Idea#3: Consider Gift Cards
Everyone on your list will understand that you simply do not have the energy to hand pick special gifts this year. Gift cards are an easy way to tell people you are thinking of them without spending a lot of time and energy on the buying process. Your friends and family members can buy whatever they want and you can make the shopping process easier.
Idea#4: Make a List
Since you are injured and on crutches, you probably have friends and family members who have offered to help you with your shopping, among other things. Make a list of the things you want to buy for certain people and send someone else to actually buy them. You can look at ads from the newspaper to get ideas and then enjoy wrapping the presents when they arrive home.
Idea#5: Take Help
If you are determined to do your shopping yourself, make sure you take someone with you to help you get through the crowds and reach the high shelves. You will need all the help you can get. That person should also be in charge of making sure you take breaks to rest when needed.
